It’s not horrible. I wanted something less expensive to tool around on and it gets the job done. With the Crostini project, it hits the same spot for me that I get when I can pop a shell on a MacBook. It can be a bit laggy if I have too many tabs open while I’m running Atom and Terminal but nothing egregious.

I’m also toying with it as a thin client for AWS Workspaces. That’s a pretty smooth experience as well; minus the lack of support for hotkeys :(

Can’t beat a $169 dev box tho :)
